Everything in life is amazing, regardless.

Paris Day 2

Eiffel Tower

First thought when I was googling the Eiffel Tower was people might be exaggerating coz everyone says it's amazingly beautiful. And then I came to see it in person and was astounded of how fascinating it is truly. I don't know what it is but it's mind blowing, I want to look at it again and again. We actually came back thrice in different days just to stare it ツ

Rue de Commerce

The little park was along Rue de Commerce, the night before, I was eager to check where local Parisian do their shopping and found this little street five minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. Of course, I got sidetracked - purchased some clothes and a bag to my heart's content tee hee. Shopping bags became heavier, we have to postpone our trip to Champs-Élysées and Notre Dame Cathedral (*chuckles).

Back in the hotel, we slept for few hours and look for something to eat near The Louvre. By the time we reach the museum, it's almost dark and was the perfect time to take picture of it's glorious surroundings, and there weren't too many people around since the museum is closed every Tuesday.

A quick hop in the train from London can bring you to Paris, and that's what we did! Off we went to the city of love in a whim! There's this enigmatic vibe when we were walking around town, I can't really pinpoint exactly but this city is compelling...

True enough, the Metro is dirty and yet it's functional and on time. It brings you at the heart of every museum, cathedral, palace you could ever think of. You can navigate the city with no difficulty at all and rely to Metro. The buildings are symmetrical to one another, plants and trees are properly cut, fresh and perfect.

We stayed at Mercure Paris Austerlitz Bibliothèque with the help of Skyscanner, relied on people's reviews, very helpful in any other way. I love love love this hotel! The room is modern and spotless, quite spacious to Paris standards. It's strategically located few steps away from Seine River, the metro station (Quai de la Gare) is just across the road. We buy fresh bread and cheese everyday at the bakery beside the hotel and I must have tasted all of their pastries, didn't care how much calories I've gain in the end *chuckles*

At night time we walked along the river and enjoyed the calming view, alongside, there's plenty of cafes and bars, we had our chicken dinner and some mojitos ^.^

Monday Blues

Feeling tired, restless and unhappy (for no reason at all), I've decided to look through at my holiday photos. It brings me back to Paris where everywhere is symmetrical and perfect.... such class! Now I'm back to being happy once more, this is the old me ^.^ Hope you're Monday is better.
